Man Takes Responsibility for Drone Crashing at White House
From the article:
A two-foot-long drone apparently flown by a hobbyist crashed on the White House grounds Monday in an extraordinary, if unintended, breach that raised fresh questions about the president’s security — and a growing threat from the sky.
A man later came forward to say he was responsible for the mishap in the middle of the night and hadn’t meant to fly the drone over the complex, officials said. “Initial indications are that this incident occurred as a result of recreational use of the device,” said Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary.
This story reminded me of being at the movies (rarely) and the psa’s saying don’t be rude by being on your cell phone and talking…. “Don’t Be That Guy”.
While police around the country are arming themselves with drones (using federally funded grant money) to be used on the American public, a toy drone goes down at the White House. The Secret Service, CIA, FBI go buzzing around like a kicked fire ant hill. LOL… NOW THEY KNOW HOW IT FEELS.
Good work Secret Service, now every nut who will want to hurt the President will know of another way of doing it. Why can’t we keep some things secret? The public doesn’t need to know every possibility available to do harm!
IMO: Obama is one of the most protected people on the planet.
No big deal, Obama is fond of drones.
I’m convinced the government does stuff like this on purpose because they want to ban drones.
Mark my words, this event will be used to show why laws are needed to ban drones for private use (the government will continue to be free to do whatever they want, of course).
When they said Drone on the White House Lawn, I thought they meant a drunk staffer passed out. As it turned out it was a case of “Hey Mister, Can I have my Kite Back?.
